LINK repositories

Here is a short run down of NeurosLink test & release software procedure.


Stable Repo (http://us.archive.neuros.tv/neuroslink):

 This is the software that is currently on the users machine if they have updated.  Only packages that are approved after spending time in Test repo will be moved to Stable software distribution.  This repo must stay compat with 1.2 and above.  Future firmware versions must be able to use this repo and previous firmware versions must remain upgradable in this repo (Cannot introduce a change in future firmware version that causes problems in previous firmware pointing to this same repo).

Test Repo (http://us.test.neuros.tv/neuroslink):

 This is the software that is currently in testing phase and waiting approval to be moved to stable.  Not all packages will be moved to stable, and some packages could be updated before they are approved for stable.  For instance 1.0 might be in stable but 1.15 is in testing.  Software in this repo is relatively safe and is just a buffer to make sure software is safe before being pushed to stable.  However it *can* break.

Experimental Repo (http://us.experimental.neuros.tv/neuroslink):

This is the software that *will* currently break your system and is used by me to check if things are working good enough to go into test.  The goal isn't to break the systems pointed to this, but it is likely to happen.  Don't use unless I tell you to specifically *or*, you just feel like reflashing.
